This guy was a long labor of love, and I'm really pleased with how he turned out. He changed quite a bit from the initial sketch I did in Chavant clay, but I hope for the better.

See my gallery for additional photos of this piece, including a turn-around montage of the finished piece and some work-in-progress shots.

As always, thanks for looking!

I wish somebody could be commissioned to do a digital art rendering of this mythical creature up to his mischief!

I really love mythical creatures, and some just don't get nearly enough credit for how awesome they truly are!

Great work! :)

How did you make the veins on the arms and legs? I've tried doing that sort of detail work before and I end up smudging the whole thing.

Thanks!

I used a few different techniques to paint the piece; glazes, washes, and drybrushing. Drybrushing was probably the technique I used for most of it, though.

Glad you like it, and thanks again!
